3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewery in SLC. Dark orange and clear color with a large white head. Nose is sweet bananas and bubble gum with some artificial sugar and candy notes as well. Light and crisp, a bit of a sweet yeast bite present. Some bubble gum and soap with the banana flavor... watermelon and peaches as well. Artificially sweet and cloying. Unbalanced sweetness but still a commendable effort for keeping it at 4% ABV.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Courtesy of douglas88. A Belgian Pale Ale, eh? Let’s see. It pours hazy deep gold with thin white head. The aroma emits cloves, grains, banana, yeast, spice, a touch of grapefruit and coriander. The taste is an even balanced mix of cloves, yeasty spice, banana, sweet tangelo, faint grapefruit, ripe green apples and a light coriander note. Into the finish it dries up a bit while grainy malt notes come to the surface. Well executed and refreshing brew.
